This paper presents a stress strength reliability model of regular and relayed linear consecutive k out of n : F systems with m change points. The components are assumed to be identical and independent. Explicit expressions of the reliabilities are obtained, and hence the stress strength reliability is obtained generally for any distributions of stresses and strengths. As an application, the distribution of the strength is taken to be generalized Lindely, while the stresses are exponential. The reliability estimators are obtained by applying EM algorithm. Finally, a numerical illustration is performed to highlight the theoretical results obtained.
